Presented by Daisy Sanders
A Resting Mess is a durational performance installation researching individual and collective trajectories of momentum and rest over extended periods. In a pursuit to discover what social or political questions arise from the contradiction between rest and chaos, performers will physically inhabit a space which embodies both.
This unique exploration and improvisation will make chaos in the Kaos Room over four days as part of Winter Nights from 1 – 4 August 2018. Attendance is free and multiple visits are encouraged over the course of the installation as mess accumulates and the performance evolves.
At the conclusion of the installation, Daisy Sanders and collaborators will engage in a Q&A with audiences to unpack and expand the unique form and process undertaken for this project development.
This performance is open for the public to immerse themselves in at all times between the hours below:
Wednesday 1 August: 12pm – 5pm
Thursday 2 August: 12pm – 7pm
Friday 3 August: 1pm – 8pm
Saturday 4 August: 12pm – 5pm, with a post performance Q&A at 5pm

Winter Nights is a cauldron for theatre making, a mid-year meeting point of theatre making and ideas about construction and deconstruction, politics and activism, gender and sexuality, inspiration and disenchantment, war, peace, camaraderie, loneliness, joy; whatever is timely for artists and audiences to share.
This development is made possible with support from the Minderoo Foundation.
